Animal Hospital at Brier Creek is led by owner Dr. Jennifer Goetz, who opened our hometown family business in 2007.

AHBC is where pets are family. We go above and beyond to give each pet the highest level of care and compassion. Did you know AHBC was nominated by an amazing pet parent for the Pets Best Insurance 2018 “My Vet’s the Best” Contest? Get the details.

Ashley Brown
Practice Manager

Ashley is the face and heart of AHBC.

Ashley helps AHBC succeed in all she does. Her dedication inspires everyone: the team and pet parents alike. She believes the best part of AHBC is our overall commitment to education, thoroughness, and cooperation. Supporting pet parents and pets is the best reward. Her motto is: “Every job worth doing is worth doing well.”

Ashley grew up in Jacksonville, North Carolina, with four sisters, two dogs, and a cat named Midnight. She earned her Bachelor of Science in Business Management from the University of South Carolina in 2008. She has a background in hospitality and a passion for giving clients the best possible service and quality of care.

In 2011, Ashley joined AHBC as a Client Relations Specialist. Three years later, she became our Practice Manager. Her proudest AHBC moment came in 2016 when she helped Dr. Goetz and the hospital become AAHA-accredited—the highest achievable distinction bestowed by the American Animal Hospital Association for veterinary care in the country.

To accomplish her goal of helping AHBC grow in our knowledge and continue building our impressive team, Ashley is taking online courses to become a Certified Veterinary Practice Manager. She hopes to earn this honor soon.

Ashley has three dogs: Bella, Fritz, and Lynx. She enjoys spending time with family, going to museums, and doing arts and crafts.


UP FRONT: Our Client Relations Specialists

Percy V.

Everyone knows and loves Percy!

Percy loves working at AHBC because he meets and supports pets and pet parents on a daily basis. His spirit animal is the engaging, affable, entertaining otter.

The ultimate people person, Percy is definitely AHBC’s “most popular”—cheerful, chatty, and beloved by everyone who walks through our door. His huge heart is a huge part of AHBC’s success.

Percy grew up in Iowa and Illinois as the youngest of three sisters and one brother. His passion and talent for interacting with people led him to a career in retail management.

When he learned of an opening at AHBC, Percy knew he could perfectly blend his love of people with his love of animals. He became an indispensable team member in December 2015.

The first love of Percy’s life was Sasha, a Siberian Husky who lived to be 13 years old. He lives in Wake Forest and co-parents Mickey, the incredible 3-pound Chihuahua, with his best friend. Ask Percy about Mickey, and watch the stories and tears flow. He is also happy to talk to you all day about your beloved fur babies—and he is so funny he keeps our pet parents, and us, in stitches.

Percy enjoys swimming, bowling…and eating. He may not cook, but he is an avid appreciator of food. His motto is to “live life to the fullest every day.”
